This stand is steel and has a simplistic outlook, but don’t be fooled. It can hold up heavy lathes and support your woodworking without a hitch.

Sizes

The stand is adjustable, which makes it easy to use regardless of the user’s height or the height of the work table. You can adjust the length between 23.75 and 35.5 inches.

Also, this lathe stand has 11 mm wide mounting slots, which fit a variety of configurations.

Feel
